Well it should come as no surprise that the Russian meteor event made quite an impact on this network even if it didn't make a huge impact on the ground. The infrasound signal recorded by the CTBTO network was the loudest it's ever recorded in the decade or so since it became operational. And while that's cool, the best part is that they've generated a version of the sound which is pitched up to make it audible to our limited human auditory faculties and you can listen to this signal on youtube.
The signal was powerful enough to be detected 15,000km away at stations in the Antarctic, and using multiple stations they put the time of the event at 03:22 GMT on 15 February 2013.

Good god I've managed to get 10 episodes into a series of Kerbal Space Program videos only having managed to irretrievably lose 4 rocket parts in the thousands that have gone into space. To celebrate such frugality I've got another raffle wherein I'm going to give out one (or more!) games from my Steam Gift collection, or even PLEX for Eve Online players.
I say 'or more' because the more entrants I get the more prizes will be added, so don't be dissuaded when you see thousands of entries, that'll just mean more winners.
As before, I'm letting Rafflecopter handle the entries to make sure everything is above board and there's no favouritism involved in selecting the winners.
